Natural Habitat Adventures

Renzo Zeppilli

From an early age, Renzo developed a deep love for the natural side of his native Peru, which he is passionate about sharing with Nat Hab guests as an Expedition Leader on our Amazon River voyages. Renzo was born and raised between Peru’s capital of Lima and the nearby Andes Mountains. Nature, especially birds, attracted his attention as a child. Eventually deciding to pursue a career that would allow him to spend and share time in nature, Renzo studied nature tourism business management at the University of Nueva Sparta in Caracas, became a licensed guide, and then went on to attain a master’s degree in environmental education, preparing him to become a field expert. Renzo worked first in southeast Peru, within the intense biodiversity of the Upper Amazon rain forest. He then traveled extensively through South America, working as a researcher on conservation projects and as a naturalist/bird guide in Brazil’s Pantanal, the Caribbean coast of Colombia, the Ecuadorian cloud forest, and also in Cuba. He is a board member of the Peru Bird Records Committee (PRBC) and has seen more than 1,500 bird species in his native country.

Upcoming Adventures with Renzo:

Kingdom of the Monarchs


Praise from Nat Hab travelers:

E. Newsom
"Over the last 20 years, we have taken about 60 tours with a variety of tour operators. We have had three favorite Expedition Leaders. We now have four. In every way, Renzo is a pro."

D. Goudy
"Renzo is that rare Expedition Leader whose energy and love of the natural world is boundless. His enthusiasm about the many varied aspects of the Peruvian Amazon is infectious and motivates the traveler to want to learn more and to participate in all activities of which he is a part. He is a delight to know, and I came home feeling privileged to have gotten to know him and the natural world he so obviously loves."

D. Schneiderman
"Renzo is one of the best Expedition Leaders we have ever had. His enthusiasm for nature's beauty and the adventures planned for us is immediately apparent, and his personal warmth is a tremendous asset."

B. Birnbaum
"Renzo was an amazingly gifted guide, combining a depth and breadth of naturalist knowledge, a passion for Cuban culture, attentive and insightful interactions with the group and very effective logistical planning. He seems to thrive on connections with his contacts in Cuba and also with the group, making him a most wonderful nature guide and cultural ambassador. He is a gem."

C. Staie
"Renzo is an excellent Expedition Leader. He did a good job trying to balance the needs of everyone on the trip. He also was willing to share his knowledge about the places we visited and the things we saw."

A. Young
"Renzo was terrific in every way and a really nice, well-educated person also! He not only kept the group happy but also seemed to keep all the various vendors happy—restaurant proprietors and wait staff, our bus driver, our local guide, hotel staff, extra guides at various stops, etc."

S. Griffing
"Renzo was outstanding in all areas. In addition, he did an excellent job modifying the itinerary whenever it became necessary."
